"The Gun", a new film by internationally acclaimed director Vladimir Alenikov, is a quite unique. Filmed in real time (90 minutes) and shot in only fifteen scenes with no cuts' the complex choreography and brilliant camerawork puts the audience in the middle of the action and makes the actors' performances look absolutely natural. Innovative and compelling, "The Gun" is far more than a frantic dash through the seedy alleys and strip clubs of Los Angeles - it is a journey through the minds of people so desperate in their pursuit of happiness that they are ready to kill for it. Written by Guy Botham

Witty execution; Excellent concept
17 January 2006 | by incspartanSee all my reviews

I saw the film at MFF. It's pure art-house. A vision of one man. You either love it or hate. But if you stick with it, the film nonchalantly creeps up on you with its captivating, brilliant camera-work and non-intrusive, yet powerful message. It's an important film to see in this day and age and it makes a perfect sense why our less-violent northern neighbors chose to screen this piece of art IN COMPETITION. The film is original and unique, which makes it worth checking it out. The filmmaker has a strong voice and opinion and he's not afraid to show it. Last summer I was watching at least 2,3 movies a week in theaters and after a few weeks all of them started to lose identity and became to blend together. They're all done in the same Hollywood fashion. The only difference is the plot, which sometimes, is not all that different at all. Out of my 2 months long movie run only 1 or 2 films stood out and that's it! Most of them I don't remember. "The Gun" however, I'll remember for a long time. It's food for thought. It's provoking and intelligent. We need more diversity, more opinions and more films like this.
